Guitar Pro 5

Hi metal people!

I have Guitar Pro 5... is awesome... the Realistic Sound makes the guitars sound like the real thing, excellent!!! I've been tabbing Iron Maiden and Tierra Santa on Guitar Pro 4... I was thinking to update all my tabs to Guitar Pro 5, so I need to update a lot of effects and specially a lot of palm mute... that means once I proceed the tabs will sound sucks on MIDI.

I'm telling you this because I need your opinion, cause if I update the tabs to gp5 there will be a lot of people that don't own Guitar Pro 5 yet, who won't see the tabs. By the other hand, the people having gp5 has the oportunity to see my gp4 tabs but because of the new Realistic Sound the palm mute sounds sucks because I tabbed them based in MIDI sound.

So, please tell me your opinion, should I proceed to update the tabs or should I keep tabbing in gp4 format? Or maybe MetalTabs could add the option to store both versions...

(I know, my english sucks!)

naat.

I got it, and to be honest, I don`t really hear that much of a difference. The real sound thing is really all that nice to me. This version looks a little bit more like powertab though.

I downloaded it, and I personally don't think that the "real" sounding guitars sound very "real" to me at all. In addition to that, the interface is more of a pain in the ass to actually learn a song with. I prefer gp4 by far.

Why would they.. I hate scrolling endlessly in powertab. Besides, in GP5 you have a choice of a few views.

Powertab is sometimes fairly annoying where it mixes all the different tracks into the one page whereas gp you just show one at a time. Or maybe you can do that on powertab aswell but i hardly ever use it so i dunno.

i have it too, and i must say that this version is much better than the previous ones, finally you're able to get a good overview of the different tracks.

GP5 is pretty good, though not too much different from GP4. The Real Sound Engine is okay, but seems to get bogged down and clippy at times (not always). The drums actually sound much better with the RSE turned off as they kinda get washed out and pushed to the back when it's on. And distorted guitars tuned to standard E are so bass heavy that you don't even need to tab a bass track. What other programs are there out that do a better job? I'd be curious to try them out.

I've always prefered GP's layout to PT, in GP its clearer to me, and you can set it to multitrack view without the score so it looks more like PT if you want anyway.

Drums in GP5

I agree, the drums sounds like shit, sounds better in MIDI...

So like, it seems that there's a lot of people that prefers Guitar Pro 4, well I'll keep tabbing in gp4 until everyone get a copy of gp5. One thing I don't like from Guitar Pro 5 is that it consumes a lot of RAM... sometimes reaching 140 MB... geez, you need at least 512 MB in RAM.

Well, I could send you my copy of gp5, but it takes like 166 MB, tell me if there's a way to send it via e-mail, Yahoo only supports 10 MB attachs; I could send it in winrar pieces, but it'll take like 24 parts.

It's optional dude you can leave it blank. When it's done uploading you can post the link here so other people can download it.
